Today is National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day – a day that doesn’t just celebrate the wonders of our favorite lunchtime legume, but allows all peanut butter lovers to openly express their adoration for an inexpensive, versatile and delicious meal staple.
Rich in healthy fats, protein, fiber and a slew of other essential vitamins and minerals, peanuts are a powerhouse of nutrition. When paired with our probiotic kefir, the health benefits, and palate pleasing properties, are amplified. Check it out: per every one ounce serving, peanut butter packs:
- 7 grams of protein
- 2 grams of fiber
- 19% RDA of niacin
- 21% RDA of manganese
- 13% RDA of vitamin E
- 14 grams of fat (mostly good, including essential omega 3s and 6s)
From smoothies and shakes to dips and desserts, we’ve collected our favorite Kefir + Peanut Butter recipes to share with you today. These easy to make, family-friendly recipes are a great way to celebrate one of your favorite foods in a healthier way.
Kefir Peanut Butter Dip
Made with Plain Lowfat Kefir, natural peanut butter and a dash of cinnamon, this dip is best drizzled over sliced apples and pears. Make it a dipping sauce by first straining the kefir.
Probiotic Kefir Smoothie Bowl
Made with frozen bananas and the nut butter of your choice (peanut butter always being recommended) these extra thick smoothie bowls are filling, nourishing and incredibly delicious.
Peanut Butter Kefir Cups
Our version of a no-bake peanut butter pie, we use our Madagascar Vanilla Low Fat Kefir, creamy peanut butter and gluten-free graham crackers for a treat you can feel good about.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie
A favorite around Halloween, this thick, rich smoothie (featuring our infamous Chocolate Truffle Low Fat Kefir) is a great way to satisfy your sweet too, without digging into the candy bowl.
Blueberry Almond Butter Overnight Oats
While the recipe calls for almond butter, you can swap it out with peanut butter for a breakfast that’s just as hearty. We like to think of it as a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in oatmeal form, so feel free to use any fruit and kefir flavor you like!
Mocha Almond Breakfast Smoothie
Another recipe calling for almond butter, we can absolutely say that this smoothie is as delicious with peanut butter. For an extra touch of indulgences, garnish with small chunks of dark chocolate.
